Anguilla is a British overseas territory. It is one of the most northerly of the Leeward Islands in the Lesser Antilles, lying east of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands and directly north of Saint Martin.
GOLF: CuisinArt Resort, Designed by Greg Norman this is the only course in Anguilla. From the very first hole a spectacular vista of St.Martin and the Caribbean Sea awaits. Dramatic elevation changes and challenging holes make a great Caribbean golf experience.
First let's sort out this charming little island’s name. It's officially St. Barthélemy, as tagged by 17th century French settlers, plus there are nicknames including St. Barth’s and St. Barts. We’re going with St. Barts and it has a silent "s" at the end.
Now you’re ready for the only overnight on our schedule. Large cruise ships are not permitted by law to dock which means you’ll find all the duty free shopping you can imagine without the lines. There are no high rise buildings either, two-stories is the refreshing limit. There are also no timeshare salesmen, no beach vendors and nary a traffic light on this eight square mile speck of paradise.
What you will find is true tranquillity, glitterati style. A blurb from the island's newspaper sums up the scene; “Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich is flying the Black Eyed Peas in to perform at a New Year's Eve party at his estate on St. Barts.”
Enjoy a second day on the magical island of St Barts. Perhaps a visit for lunch to one of its many outstanding restaurants, a gentle stroll through the harbour lined up with many of the world’s most beautiful private yachts, and a visit to Shell Beach to watch the sun going down .. or just a relaxing day onboard SeaDream I.
Nevis is also the spot to explore the other half of your Caribbean getaway, under water. This place is perfect for the first time or casual scuba diver. Ample instruction is provided but no license is required. You’ll be under the close and constant supervision of an expert dive master who will guide you to amazing shallow water sites like "Hot Springs”, "Bug’s Hole" and "The Church Reef". It’s bucket list. Check.
GOLF: Four Seasons Nevis, designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. This course has wonderful views over to St Kitts and enjoys some dramatic changes in elevation. The palm lined fairways are imaginatively routed around the slopes of the dormant Mount Nevis volcano.
Intoxicating natural beauty, sunny skies, warm waters, and white sandy beaches combine to make St. Kitts one of the most seductive spots in the Caribbean. Christopher Columbus first spotted St. Kitts in 1493, when it was populated with native tribes, but the Europeans didn't colonize until the British arrived in 1623. Its strategic location and valuable sugar trade led to an advanced and luxurious development that was among the best in the Colonial Caribbean
GOLF: Royal St. Kitts Golf Club is a spectacular Caribbean golf course. Reopened in 2004, the course is played over 125 irrigated acres of lush grass and allows golfers to play along both the Caribbean Sea and on the Atlantic Ocean. Water hazards are prominent on 10 holes, while 80 bunkers and a multitude of coconut palm trees make for a memorable Caribbean golf experience.
Soper’s Hole marina on Tortola's West End retains its quaint charm while being a center of activity and voted the best marina in the BVIs. SeaDream offers several land adventures including, snorkelling, scuba diving, land rover safari and swimming with the dolphins. The small boutiques of the marine also offer plenty shopping
Over lunch SeaDream I makes the short sail to Norman Island. This privately owned island is uninhabited and could very well be the island reputed to be the inspiration for Robert Louis Stevenson's pirate novel Treasure Island. Guests may enjoy some great hiking opportunities as well as snorkelling and scuba diving.
SeaDream’s signature Champagne & Caviar Splash™ will put an exclamation point on your voyage. A shore side celebration of the yachting lifestyle, guests and crew reflect on good times shared and to meeting again with flowing champagne toasts and caviar. A gourmet barbecue served on a white sandy beach will follow. At the sound of the yacht’s horn… play the music, let the bubbles flow and enjoy a bite of caviar. Tomorrow can wait!
Disembark SeaDream I at 9:00am.
